A HOOTERS rival has finally closed its doors at one location, leaving sports fans divided.
The Buffalo Wild Wings Bar in northeastern Colombia abruptly closed its doors just a week after several other closures were announced.
A spokesman for the chicken wing chain said last week CTV NewsToronto that the “difficult decision” was made to close “some” of its Ontario locations.
The spokesman did not provide the reasons for the closures, but said that “locations are regularly reviewed to provide the best service to guests”.
Bars that were axed included bars in Oakville, London, Ajax, Stoney Creek and Vaughan.
Earlier this month, one of its restaurants in Minnesota also closed.
The company also closed its two Calgary locations back in March without warning or explanation.
Now the bar in Columbia has also been added, and its status on Facebook is set to “permanently closed”.
News of the closure spread on social media after people started going to the bar for lunch on Monday and it was closed with all signs removed from the walls.
Although there are over 1,200 locations, a number of reviews and comments released around the news of the closures show that people are divided over the announcements.
On Google, someone wrote, “I’m really shocked at how bad the food has turned out.”
Another agreed: “The quality of the food and staff has definitely gone down.”
Meanwhile, someone wrote on Reddit amid the London shutdown: “Mediocre food at high prices.”
“I’ve never been back. I’m sorry everyone who worked there lost their job, but personally I won’t miss it.”
Another added: “Get well soon. Terrible wings and service and sky high prices.”
However, others were more disappointed, saying, “Oh boy, I loved this place.”
“Only been there a few times and found the sauces to be great and the staff always seemed very friendly.”
Another simply said: “What! Why?”
